    The EU Advanced Course in
    Computational Neuroscience
    introduces students to the
    panoply of problems

    and methods of computational
     neuroscience, simultaneously
    addressing several levels of
    neural organisation, from
    subcellular processes to
    operations of the entire brain.

    The course consists of
    two complementary

    parts. A

    distinguished international
    faculty gives morning lectures
    on topics in experimental and

    computational neuroscience.
                               The
    rest of the day is devoted to
    practical training,

    including learning how to use
    simulation software and how to
    implement a model of the
    system the student wishes to
    study on individual unix
    workstations.

    The first week of the course
    introduces students to essential
    neurobiological concepts and to
    the most important techniques
    in modelling single cells,
    networks and neural systems.
    Students learn how to apply
    software packages like
    GENESIS, MATLAB, NEURON, XPP,
    etc. to the solution of their
    problems. During the following
     three weeks the lectures will
     cover specific brain
    functions. Each week topics
    ranging from modelling single
    cells and subcellular processes
    through the simulation of
    simple circuits, large neuronal
     networks and system level
    models of the brain will be
    covered. The

    course ends with a presentation of the students' projects.

    The EU Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience is designed for
     advanced graduate

    students and postdoctoral fellows in a variety of disciplines, including
    neuroscience, physics,

    electrical engineering, computer science and psychology.
    Students are expected to have a basic

    
    background in neurobiology as well as some computer experience. Students of
    any nationality can apply.

    A total of 32 students will be accepted. About 20 students will be from the
    European Union and affiliated countries (Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein and
    Norway plus all countries which are negotiating future membership with the
    EU). These students are supported by the European Commission and we
    specifically encourage applications from researchers who work in
     lessfavoured regions of the EU and women. IBRO, ICTP and the Boehringer
       Ingelheim Foundation provide support for

    participation from students of non-European countries all over the world,
     IBRO and ICTP in particular countries from the former Soviet Union, Africa,
    Asia and South America. Students receiving support from the mentioned
     sources will receive travel grants and free full board at the Adriatico
    Guest House in Trieste.
